Mark your calendars and come join us for a day of fisheries fun! Over the years, these festivities have grown from a small community potluck centered on the commercial smelt harvest to a well-known regional event serving 500+ guests. This year the event will be held on Saturday, April 13th from 11 am until 4 pm. Throughout downtown Columbia Falls, there will be activities and displays that feature the inspiring fisheries and conservation work of DSF and their partners. All of the DSF venues are within a ¼ mile radius of downtown Columbia Falls and transportation between sites is available.
This is truly a family-friendly event!
The Annual Smelt Fry is a wonderful way to welcome spring. Come learn what projects are happening within the fisheries and about DSF’s regional involvement. Local foods will be featured with smelts, alewives, and mackerel being smoked at the DSF smoker, venison stew, a seasonal fried smelt dinner and dessert made with local blueberries is served at the Wreaths Across America gym.
